If you would like additional information concerning the Florida State Assessment testing, please access the links below. They include a link to a video to help students become familiar with buttons and features of the assessments, a link to the FSA portal, and a letter containing information for parents. We encourage you to frequently visit the Florida State Assessments Portal as there is important information that you and your student can utilize and understand to assure your child's academic success. Among these tools are training tests. The portal is updated on a daily basis.
A schedule for the FSA assessments, along with the End of Course assessments for Geometry, Civics, Algebra and Biology can be accessed by clicking on the link below. Students taking the FSA assessments and Algebra and Geometry EOCs will take those assessments over two consecutive days. FCAT Science, Civics EOC and Biology EOC will be one-day tests.
There will be questions which require listening to a recording on the ELA (Reading) test. Students are encouraged to bring their own ear buds. No wireless headphones will be allowed. These are considered to be electronic devices and can not be used during testing.Testing ScheduleVideo - Features of the FSA Assessments

Electronic Devices Policy (FSA and EOC)
—If students are found with ANY electronic devices, including
but not limited to cell phones and smartphones, during testing OR during breaks, their
tests will be invalidated. The best practice would be for students to leave devices at home
or in their lockers on the day of testing. They must at least be turned completely off and placed in their backpacks during the testing period. Students are also not allowed to have any paper of any kind on their desks or in their pockets, except for what is issued to them for testing.Leaving Campus
—If students leave campus before completing the test (for lunch, an
appointment, illness, etc.), they WILL NOT
be allowed to complete the test. If a student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for the student to wait and be tested on a make-up day.
